So, finally the last day has arrived.
I didn’t ever think that these 4 months would vanish off as if anything!
I’m very delighted, getting an opportunity to work in RAW Architecture as an intern. This is my the very first experience of working, that too outside my country and it has been the “perfect” one!
During my time in RAW, I am gained skills that are not accommodated by institution, but in the real industries, what we understood as an architect student is, completing all the design process and producing such killer visuals. However, the real industries say, completing them, is just the very first process of completion.
Within these months, there are a lot of projects I get to work on, it was mostly residential and the other was commercial uses like an office. I’ve got a lot of help from the designers while working on these projects. There are so many steps I learnt on the projects starting from the sketch, designing plans, facades, developing 3D, detailed drawings, until making presentations and models. Not only designing a building, here I also get to learn about building construction. I got to visit the project site multiple times, discussing things with the structural/MEP engineer, and meeting more detailed problems on the site. Well, these kinds of process always be the most interesting.
I have never ever imagined my habit would change, including my mindset, the working environment is superb, very light, very chill, when there has to be seriousness, there is serious environment, otherwise, it’s amazing.
Those warm welcome as I reached and started working in office, started blending in with people here will always stay in my memories, which though I have a lot of them by now!
Through this platform I want to thank, Mr. Realrich, for letting me in this office and made me feel as one of his own; the associates, Miftah, Ali, Asep, wouldn’t thought of getting such cool mentors ever that too in such an intensive working place; the designers, Ica, Regi, Yuli, Jajo, Tirta, Aga, Nida, Gomez, Fiona, Meme, Damar, Laras, Erick, thank you for teaching me from work area till the basic local necessities, guiding me step by step and making me feel as one of yours. And last but not the least, the interns, Filie, Dody, Aussie, Sigit, Lady, Zabel, Bea, Fahry, Neya, Regina, Linton, Adot, Yuki, Riza, Aris, Trina, Aron, Ivan, for everything, starting from language, to places, for telling ha-ha wrong words (they did come in use btw).
I do owe a lot to all of you and hope to meet at some corner of the world 😊
